What do you need help with?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi mamas! I have a little one and one on the way, and am trying to come up with some sort of job since I can't go back to work. I need your input.

My idea is to provide a sort of "secretary" service for moms of newborns. Making appointments, running a few crucial errands, sitting with the babe for 30 minutes while mom showers, etc. I am hoping that I could juggle 5-10 moms at a time. They would pay a monthly fee.

This would be a totally mom pampering service. What do you find you need help with? I just remember being totally overwhelmed, not able to even clip my toe-nails. I'd really appreciate your response.

Well since you are not likely to get many replies in here, we have all moved to "Life with a Babe" - but right after birth, after my parents left I could have totally used help with the following:

Errand running - trying to get a newborn into the car and around town was a joke! I would have loved someone to run to the store, grab the heavy bags of pet food and cat litter etc!

Sort my mail! - and get the bills into one pile of "have to pay" and get rid of the junk mail

Transition my closet - move and store my maternity clothes that weren't nursing clothes and pull easy to put together outfits to the front.

Help with thank you cards for gifts!

Organize DD closet with clothes by age range

Love my cats and dog! They were so neglected right after the birth! I would have loved someone to offer to walk the dog or take her to the dog park!

Hope that helped!
